Hello Everyone! It’s November 2nd and we all have a super busy month! Here is some information on the annual Folk Festival.
Beavers Bend Folk Festival – The Forest Heritage Center Museum will host one of Oklahoma’s most popular autumn events November 10th, 11th and 12th, 2017. The 24th annual Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show brings about 17,000 visitors to southeastern Oklahoma each year, just in time for the beautiful fall colors.
And of course Thanksgiving! I love this time of year. We get to spend time with family and friends and eat a lot of delicious food, but more importantly we give thanks to our Lord and Savior for the many blessing that He has given us. This isn’t the only time that we can thank Him. We can go to the Lord anytime to ask for help, forgiveness, peace, love and to make the most important decision of any persons life, and that is to ask Jesus to come into your life and accept Him as your Lord and Savior.
The weather is a little crazy. It has warmed up into the upper 70’s to 80 degrees, and it will be that way until around the 7th and then it will cool back off. Thank God! It will be in the low to mid 60’s after that.
I read another poem that I think is perfect for this month. I hope that y’all enjoy.
THANKSGIVING DELIGHTS by Joanna Fuchs
On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.
For sun and light to warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.
We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.
The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!
I hope you all have a wonderful month. Happy Thanksgiving. God Bless!!
